When to Hire a Medical Malpractice Lawyer

April 21, 2020

“First, do no harm.” It’s one of the basic tenets of The Hippocratic Oath that doctors swear upon when entering the profession. While healing patients and enhancing quality of life is central to the medical practice, the reality is that sometimes, harm is done.

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, medical negligence is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. – right behind heart disease and cancer. But there are things you can do to avoid becoming one of these statistics:

  • Be your best health-care advocate and to know where to turn when the time is right.
  • Do your research to understand the health conditions facing you or your loved one.
  • Document all symptoms.
  • Ask healthcare providers a written list of questions that you feel are important and expect full and complete answers to them.

If you suspect your or a loved one has been subjected to negligent care, the skilled litigators at Garcia Legal will fight for your rights. We will conduct a thorough review of the case details – from securing pertinent medical records to interviews with the patient, family members and friends – to determine whether the case is actionable. If  so, we’ll draw on resources such as expert witnesses and private investigators, to help win compensation for you for the damages you have suffered.

Advocating for your rights

Medical malpractice can leave you feeling angry, frustrated and even grief-stricken. That’s why it’s important to have our legal team by your side to represent your interests, fight for what’s right, and win you the compensation you deserve.
